Public-private can bridge Asia poverty gap - World Bank

Addressing poverty amid booming economic times is a common challenge shared by many Asian countries.

Sri Mulyani Indrawati is the former finance minister for Indonesia and now the managing director of the World Bank.

She says getting the governments and the private sector to work together on infrastructure projects is the key to solving part of the problem.

She told the BBC's Asia Business Report how this approach might work for differing economic areas.
